FOREWORD 



This publication is the 9th in a series of statistical ..summaries 
on vegetable production in the State of Florida. It is presented 
through the joint efforts of the Agricultural Marketing Service (former 
ly the Bureau of Agricultural Economics), U. S. Department of Agricul- 
ture and the Agricultural Experiment Stations, University of Florida. 

It . is the purpose of this publication to present a summary of the 
1952-53 season with .historical data for comparative purposes. It is 
the final summation of all the reports issued currently throughout the 
season, after detailed revisions were made as a result of an. annual 
check with growers as to the final outcome of the year's yields and 
production as compared with shipments and other utilization. 

It is a pleasure to introduce a new member of' our collaborative 
team - Mr. Clyas Crenshaw, Assistant Agricultural Economist, Agricul- 
tural Experiment Stations. Mr. Crenshaw was formerly with' Clemson 
College, South Carolina. You will get to knov/ him better as the 
months roll by.' Per acr/e cost of production and returns are again 
submitted for your consideration by Donald L. Brooke, Associate Agri- 
cultural Economist of the Agricultural Experiment Stations, University 
of Florida. 

* < 

r, We gratefully acknowledge our indebtedness to each person and 
organization contributing to the development of these data. . Your' ; . 
cooperation makes these reports possible. With the exception of ship- 
ment information, the data contained in this report are estimates and 
are based on reports by, and' interviews with. growers, shippers, market- 
ing associations and organizations, seedsme'n, railroad representatives, 
canners and other processors.' Also the Agricultural Extension Service 
through its County agricultural agents, the Federal-State Inspection 
and Market News Services, the Flqrida State Marketing Board and the 
Florida State Marketing Bureau, ""the Agricultural Stabilization and 
Conservation, (formerly ;*P.M.A. ) , 'the State, l Plant Eoard and other well 
informed sources. 1 ■ J 

This is truly a democratic service in" that it provides growers, 
small and large, with timely'crop information. It also has a leveling 
and stabilizing influence in minimizing exaggerations and counteracting 
unfounded rumors. It is herewith submitted for your careful considera- 
tion and use as a source of factual information* 



INDEX 



Each crop generally carries the following sequence of data by season: Name of 
crop - Season; Acres for harvest, by Counties; Acreage, production and value - 
State summary; Acreage and production by counties and areas, 1952-53; Shipping data; 
Per acre costs and returns. Crops that harvest in more than one season are then 
combined in one total grouping classified as "All" and placed before the breakdown 
by seasonal groupings. Yellow pages are placed mainly as dividers between crops 
with per acre cost and returns on or adjacent thereto.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPINGS - In order that competitive production within the State of 
Florida and the United States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably 
uniform groups, we have established a National pattern which is based on the most 
active harvesting periods. These major groups are WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL. 
The WINTER group includes the months of January, February, and March; SPRING in- 
cludes April, May, and June; SUMMER includes July, August, and September (Florida 
carries no official summer commercial crops); and FALL includes October, November, 
and December. These periods are not rigidly fixed and the harvesting period for a 
particular grouping may extend over into the preceding or following group. However, 
in arranging our data we have follovred these groupings in so far as it is practical. 
For example, it has been considered practical to carry cabbage, cauliflower, 
escarole, lettuce, and strawberries as one season crops, designating them WINTER 
since the volume production is harvested generally during January, February, and 
March. Since some systematic order of grouping is necessary it is deemed best for 
all concerned to handle our classifications on a National basis even though they 
may not always agree with some local designations now in use. 

PLANTED ACREAGE - The definition for planted acreage is based on a "loss of crop" 
concept. Estimates of planted acres for any seasonal groupin g consist of acres for 
harvest (see next page) during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage 
planted for harvest during the season, but which was lost or destroyed and did not 
produce a crop in the season under consideration. If the acreage is lost and not 
replanted it is counted as planted , If it is lost but replanted for harvest in the 
same season as the original acreage would have been harvested, the acreage replanted 
is not considered as additional acreage planted. However, if the acreage lost is 
replanted for harvest in a later season, it is considered as planted for both 
seasons and as acres for harvest only for the latter season. 

ACRES FOR HARVEST - This is considered as being all acreage from which a crop could 
have been harvested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, etc.) warrant- 
ed the harvest/ It includes mature acreage on which the harvest was postponed or 



delayed too long due to economic reasons and the production lost thereby. Acreage 
which produces such low yields or poor quality that th'e crop is not xvorth picking 
at any reasonable price is considered as crop failure - ' fend is not included in the 
acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage -which produces' yields which would be har- 
vested at reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 

YIELD - Yield refers to total production of merchantable quality produced on an 
acre basis and may include some unharvested production left in fields for economic 
reasons. 

PRODUCTION - Total production represents the yield times (X) the acres for harvest . 
Production of value is that part of the production which was harvested and sold or 
utilized and does not include economic abandonment. 

ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT - This category includes mature producti on not harvested be- 
cause of economic factors, such as low prices, shortage of labor, etc. Such loss 
of production includes quantities left in fields partially harvested as well as 
production on acreage abandoned for economic reasons. Acreage abandoned at any 
stage of growth be f o r e maturit y will be considered as loss of acreage or crop 
failure rather than economic abandonment of production. 

UNIT VALUE OR PRICE - All prices used in this report are on an F.O.B. basis or its 
equivalent, less selling charges. In the case of some commodities which are sold 
in units other than the one listed, these units are converted into the equivalent 
of the ones used. 

TOTAL VALUE - The total value is the price per unit times (X) the production of 
value. 

CANNED OR PROCESSED ACREAGE AND PRODUCTION - The acreage of vegetables in Florida 
planted solely for canning and other processing purposes during the period covered 
by this publication has been confined principally to cucumbers for pickles. The 
acreages of beans and tomatoes, the principal crops canned, are planted primarily 
for fresh market, but during recent years, substantial quantities have been canned 
or frozen. In order to show the utilization of the production from the acreage 
brought to harvest, three columns on production are used in the State Summaries. 
The first shows the total production with a footnote of any economic abandonment; 
the second shows the production in bushels sold for fresh market consumption; and 
the third shows the production in bushels sold for processing (either canned or 
frozen). Those desiring to know the equivalent acreage utilized for processing 
should divide the number of bushels processed by the average yield then generally 
round to the nearest hundred. The prices given for processed beans and tomatoes 
are based on a per ton price and reduced to a per bushel price (rounded to the near- 
est whole cent). 

COSTS AND RETURNS PER ACRE IN SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA - These tables represent the 
summarization of grower records or estimates of costs and returns per acre from 
several vegetable crops in the major producing areas of Florida for the 1952-53 
season as compiled by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Stations. In so far as 
possible, growing and harvesting costs have been separated and labor items excluded 
from costs of materials. 

MIXED CAR MOVEMENT - Total shipments of produce in mixed cars are shown by months 
on Page 105. These data include the equivalent cars shown in our regular ship- 
ment data under each specific crop carried in this publication.
